I'm having to use cherry tomatoes in my cheese sandwiches now. But, the big ones are getting ready to be ready. Love a tomato cheese sandwich. I leave out the mayo, and add a lettuce basil leaf. Might even put some crumbled bacon in there! YUM! YUM!!! Looking at that sandwich made me drool!
This may sound crazy, but if you butter the bread on the outside and brown it in a fry pan like you would a regular cheese sandwich but with duke and tomatoes. it sets a tomato sandwich over the top of the totally delicious meter.
We no longer keep a toaster. If I want toast, I do it in the cast iron skillet. Yep. Any sandwich with cheese MUST be toasted. When I was nursing babies, I would eat 2 Colby Cheese and tomato sandwiches for lunch EVERY day.
So after having this grilled garden ripe tomato and cheese sandwich. A guy has to stop and ask himself, is there a better sandwich anywhere in the world?
Butter one side both pieces of bread, dukes mayo the other side of both pieces. Heat pan, place one slice bread butter side down, add slices of tomato to cover, lightly salt, add a layer of cheese, add another layer of sliced tomato, lightly salt, add second piece bread dukes mayo side down. Flip and brown bread, so delicious
I don't like cheese on my mater sandwich...just tomato, sweet onion, Miracle Whip and hot pepper butter/jam. That's my go to garden delight each year...though now if I have one, I get gout and suffer for days afterwards.
